On Monday, January 23, the US Coast Guard proposed new regulations to address LNG facility and vessel requirements on the Savannah River, explaining that “the current regulation is no longer adequate,” in light of the completion of two new berths at Elba Island in late 2005. Intended to better accommodate vessel traffic while increasing security, the proposed rule allows for more traffic to pass the facility while LNG tankers are maneuvering, and includes safety precautions such as a requirement for two standby tugs for moored LNG tankers, elimination of the Broadcast Notice to Mariners of LNG deliveries, and relaxed rules for the Captain of the Port. Comments are requested before March 24, 2006, and the Federal Register posting is available here.
